We are building the go-to site in the country for college lacrosse by creating a wide and loyal audience through smart reporting and aggregation, and promoting our work through social media and other reader contact. We're adding this role as part of an exciting initiative to redefine digital journalism in Central New York, and we've created a forward-thinking workspace with state-of-the-art tools for nimble digital and mobile journalism to help you optimize your impact.

    A solid understanding of news writing, journalistic ethics and story structure.

    It didn't seem like the football job was paying much, so...

    Has anyone here heard back from any of these Syracuse jobs? I know there were a few others such as the previously mentioned football one. Never heard anything though, just wondering.

    Also applied into a black hole. I believe that the jobs came available when they went to their new digital first format.

    A guess, and mind you this is a total guess: The people who had these jobs prior to the conversion were made to reapply and most if not all of them got their spots back.
